This ultra modern building looked space age and I supposed it to be an equipment shed. I also didn't know what the piece of farm equipment in the foreground was:

A lovely pair of old barns:

These old structures are beautiful but won't be around forever. Now is the time to photograph them and appreciate their beauty:

This house was nearly hidden behind Cedar trees. I thought it might be occupied, but when I got home and looked at the picture, decided it probably was not:

A classic farm complex:

A barn and silo, both falling into disrepair but a memory of when this was big farm country. But I had nearly reached the highway and the farms along the way were being replaced by suburban style homes. I put my camera away and concentrated on getting home, where my five dogs were waiting:
